Trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp
Have you ever dreamed of seeing Mt. Everest up close? How about climbing 21,247 foot Mera Peak, the highest trekking peak in the Solu Khumbu Region? Have you dreamed of trekking for a cause? The proceeds from this trip of a lifetime will go towards hip replacement surgery for 16 year old Dirgha Shahi, a 16 year old Nepali boy born with hip dysplasia. His surgery is scheduled for May 2016 by Helping Assist Nepal’s Disabled (H.A.N.D), a US based 501(c)(3)
The mission of HAND is to serve the Nepali people who suffer from disabilities of all types. We have a special mission to help the children of parents with disabilities, as they are the future of Nepal. We also conduct most of our work in the remote villages of Nepal.
Your dream can become reality with the trip of a lifetime in April 2016.
We will begin our trek on April 16th with a breathtaking flight to the Sherpa village of Lukla. From the Sherpa village of Namche Baazar we will take the “road less traveled” as we turn off of the main trekking route and cross Rejo Pass, climb Gokyo Peak, spend a night at the shores of beautiful Gokyo Lake, then cross Chola Pass and join the main trekking route at Lobuche.

The views are breathtaking throughout the trek. After completing the Everest Base Camp trek, those who have dreamed of climbing a Himalayan peak will continue up 21,247 foot Mera Peak. Those wishing to return home will return to Kathmandu for their return flight home.
The trek/climb will be led by Brian Smith HAND Executive Director/Founder who reached the summit of Mt. Everest in 2007, and a climbing Sherpa. Brian is also a Certified International Tour Director. The logistics are provided by 10 time Everest summiteer Tendi Sherpa.
